Thank you for reviewing my Avvo page. I am a proud father of three daughters, the oldest of which has autism.  I am active in the special needs community and enjoy working with families on special needs estate planning and guardianships in addition to traditional estate planning, probate, real estate and small business.  I enjoy cooking, especially smoking meat, and spending time with family.  I have also enjoyed water skiing, snow skiing and SCUBA diving.

Personable and Knowledgable
Kevin was invaluable in advising us on our family's lake cottage for appropriate estate and liability protection. This has given us peace of mind in knowing we can enjoy and leave our family legacy to future generations. I highly recommend his services as he brings a level of expertise beyond what I expected.
